rworange | Dec 10, 201010:03 AM

This is one of my favorite restaurants in Antigua and I can not wait to return next week.

It is a deli, restaurant, chocoletier, pasteleria and grocery selling natural and organic food.

The restaurant sells soups, sandwiches, burgers salads and a few entrees such as salmon with lemon sauce. The bakery makes diabetic as well as gluten-free baked goods. The chocolates are made with herbs and fruit from the garden.

Special dishes for the weekend, chicken pepián, chicken jocón or subanik for instance, may be eaten at the restaurant or ordered for take-out.
There are three lush gardens in the back of the restaurant. The garden on the lower level, has several tables and a hammock. There is a second level garden up a few steps that has a large green lawn with tables. The upper garden has four cabanas surrounded by plants and trees.

Here's what I had rated from A+ to F -

A - … Pepian with black tortillas
B …... Orangeade
C …... Red wine and fresh strawberry smoothie
B + … Candied fruit truffle
B - …. House-made Guatemalan chocolates

Service: B - … Very good
Ambiance: A - … Way above average
Price: $$
